Mexico Labor Law Update: A Legal Primer For U.S. Employers
|Date / Time:
Many U.S. employers have reduced their labor costs and diversified their operations by hiring workers in Mexico. But doing business in Mexico isn't as straightforward as it may appear. Mexican employment laws are far more labor-friendly than their U.S. counterparts: The Mexican government requires holiday pay, Christmas bonus pay, severance pay, and even profit sharing of 10 percent of the company's income. Also, work schedules and overtime vary from what U.S.-based companies are accustomed to.
In addition to these regulations, there are also major changes on the horizon. Late last year, Mexico's Congress approved wide-sweeping changes to the country's dated labor laws. That means it will now be easier to hire and fire employees. Many predict this could be a boon to small businesses, who will now be able to hire more easily without having to comply with complicated rules.
If you are contemplating business operations in Mexico, or already operating there, you need to understand how changes to Mexico's labor law will affect your operations so you can reduce your risk of legal liability.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- An introduction to Mexico's complex set of employment laws that apply to U.S. employers
- What you need to do to hire workers in Mexico and important language you must have in your employment agreements
- Tips for learning Mexico's work schedules, salary rules, and overtime regulations - and how they differ from those in the U.S.
- Key changes that will impact the face of Mexico's labor law
- Strategies for handling Mexico's extremely employee-friendly rules for benefits - everything from medical coverage to days off
- Why a collective bargaining agreement is a must-have with your Mexico-based workers - and how not to get trampled by the unions in the process
- How to discipline, suspend, and fire employees, while also staying out of legal hot water
- How to best work with service providers in Mexico
- A checklist of things you must do before you relocate U.S.-based employees to Mexico
- The biggest mistakes your fellow U.S.-based businesses have made when doing business in Mexico - and how you can avoid them
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn everything you need to know about Mexico's new labor law changes and the impact they'll have on your organization. Register now for this informative event risk-free.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
